Hey, I'm trying to locate the episode and the series of a OTR radio show that I heard over 15 years ago. The plotline goes something like this:

* Young girl marries a professor (possibly archeologist)
* Girl and professor go to study a jungle tribe
* Some time passes, and the girl's mother visit the girl
* The girl absolutely hates the jungle
* Something happens, and the girl has to go through the trial of "bitter water" where you have to drink the water. If you are truthful, nothing happens, but if you are a liar (or was it guilty), you die
* The girl is fearful
* Mother asks if she can drink the water first. The chief says, "Anyone may drink", so the mother drinks, and nothing happens.
* The girl drinks... and she dies.

I believe PDG is on the right track, but I know I've heard this episode. Also try short run series such a The Weird Circle, Quiet Please or The Sealed Book

Sounds like an ep of Escape!,or possibly one of the 40's Lights Out shows. Also check Suspense. Cross-ref with Jerry Haendige's radio logs or David Goldin's Radio GoldIndex.
